Wynne says sometimes people have to do things for themwelves
3 0

Premier Kathleen Wynne brushes aside suggestions that Linda Jeffrey is moving on because the Municipal Affairs Minister isn't confident in the Premier's leadership.

Wynne says she can't take everything that happens in politics personally.

She stresses people have to make decisions based on their own life's journey.

Jeffrey will be handing in her official resignation on Tuesday with an announcement slated for one o'clock in the afternoon. She will also tell the Liberal caucus of her plans to step down and run for mayor of Brampton.

She wasn't in the legislature at all on Monday.

Tory finance critic Vic Fedeli points to this latest departure. as well as a long list of cabinet ministers jumping ship. Recent announcements show Attorney General John Gerretsen and Government House Leader John Milloy not seeking re-election.

Fedeli claims it shows a lack of confidence in the Liberal government right now. As for what the premier should do when she shuffles ministers to fill the vacancy, he suggests shrinking cabinet.

But Fedeli says even if the Premier does that it would just be a token gesture, stressing what really needs to be put in place is an accross the board wage freeze.

    Now that's just awesome/scary at the same time.
    I said maybe she saw the writing on the wall- and three days later Wynne/Liberals are under a microscope by the OPP.
